A pretty good idea taking root here... count me in. Marc, you reach 100k miles, dinner (or breakfast) is on me if our paths cross. We’re all pulling for you, friend.

Marc Lee,

I want to be clear regarding this competition, that I will take no pleasure in winning because of your failure at Dutch Maid.

One of my favorite inspirational quotes is Theodore Roosevelt's "To the Man in the Arena." You are that man who has "come up short again and again."

But no more! This time you're going to make it and our competition is going to be about who manages their clock the best, who takes the initiative to arrive early and get delivery times moved up, and who drives every mile as safe and as efficient as they can.

You have a huge leg up on me because you have your CDL already and have started with Dutch Maid.

Make the most of this opportunity. Be mindful in everything you do, by being focused with a calm and confident attitude.

Good luck and let the best driver prevail.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

OOS:

thank-you.gif Rob D. I appreciate that, as I do the groundswell of support here! FYI... I am rooting for you!

I do need to warn you though... I have already confirmed we are allowed to contact Shippers and Receivers directly to move up appointment times! No fake Qual Comm messages needed... though we do use Qual Comm!

good-luck.gif to us both.

WE GOT THIS!
